YTHACT2: YTH PARTICPATED IN YOUTH ACTIVITIES

NOTE: The variables in this section are recoded variables
that were created from one or more of the edited variables
from the preceding section.

The following variable, YTHACT2 was created by
counting the number of positive responses reported
over the following 4 youth activity questions:
School-based (YESCHACT), community-based (YECOMACT),
church or faith-based (YEFAIACT), or other activities
(YEOTHACT). Youth respondents who reported
participation in 2 or more activities were included
in the two or more category regardless of how
many other activity questions were answered.
Youth respondents who did not answer 2 or more
of the 4 youth activity questions with a "yes"
or "no" response were coded as SAS missing. To
be included in the none or one category, a youth
respondent must have answered 2 or more of the
activity questions and reported they participated
in either zero or one activity.
